*The following is an individual’s story of surviving fluoroquinolone toxicity. It is not medical advice. Please see the disclaimer at the bottom of the story. Thank you, and please be cautious with all treatments.
I just wanted to let everyone on this page know that I was also a victim of fluoroquinolone poisoning almost five years ago. This picture was taken about 6 months after I took Cipro. I was in awful pain in the picture and had to wear compression hose in order to walk short distances. I was going through complete hell, visiting numerous doctors and spending endless amounts of money with no answers …to why my body was withering away. The black dog in the picture is a rescue dog I adopted during this horrible ordeal. I named him Fletcher and concentrated on him instead of solely dwelling on my physical state. He was full of fear and needed me desperately. The little bit that I could give him during that time frame was enough to make him the amazing dog that he is today. He needed me but most of all I needed him. I really believe that once I adopted him I was able to heal more quickly. It’s been five years and I am finally almost fully recovered. I say almost because I do have some permanent damage in my ears and back. It was the worst couple years of my life but at the same time I found this doggy soulmate who now has a family who will move a mountain for him. Sometimes good things can come out of bad experiences. I wanted to share this with everyone going through the same thing. Never give up and if you don’t own an animal maybe you should think about adopting one. The love and healing you will get is priceless. It will help you get through this. Take care, Gigi
